We Deserve It Dividend.
Where is the flaw in this?

Our population is about 301,000,000 +/- counting every man, woman and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab at adults 18 years old and up. So divide 200 million adults 18+ into $85 billon - that equals $425,000.00.

My plan is to give $425,000 to every person 18+ as a "We Deserve It Dividend."

Of course, it would NOT be tax free. So let's assume a tax rate of 30%. Every individual 18+ has to pay $127,500.00 in taxes. That sends $25,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam. But it means that every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket. A husband and wife have $595,000.00.

What would you do with $297,500.00 to $595,000.00 in your family's account?

Pay off your mortgage? - Housing crisis solved.

Repay college loans? - What a great boost to new grads.

Put away money for college? - It'll be there.

Save in a bank? - Create money to loan to entrepreneurs.

Buy a new car? Create jobs?

Invest in the market? - Capital drives growth.

Pay for your parent's medical insurance? - Health care improves.

Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean? Or else!

Remember this is for every adult U S Citizen 18+ including the folks who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers and every other company that is cutting back. And, of course, for those serving in our Armed Forces. If we're going to redistribute wealth, let's really do it... instead of trickling out a puny $1,000.00 ("vote buy") economic incentive that is being proposed by one of our candidates for President.

If we're going to do an $85 billion bailout, let's bail out every adult U S Citizen 18+!

As for AIG… Liquidate it. Sell off its parts. Let American General go back to being American General. Sell off the real estate. Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.

Here's my rationale. We deserve it – AIG doesn't. Sure it's a crazy idea that can "never work." But can you imagine the Coast-To-Coast Block Party! How do you spell Economic Boom? I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use the $85 Billion.

We Deserve It Dividend more than the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC. And remember, the plan only really costs $59.5 Billion because $25.5 Billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.
Now let's bring this up to date. Can you say "SUPERSIZE IT"? Now do the same thing with $700 BILLION that congress is throwing around today. No oversight necessary other than IRS. And while we're at it, lets disbar past and present Congressmen, Senators and Presidents from riding on that train.

Get you calculator out and do your math. $425.00 is just a big disappointment.

I know we don't want to spend too much time blogging but six month to a year off might be a bit much. :)
